More about our services

IV sedation
What is IV sedation?

IV sedation is a type of sedation where a sedative drug is administered intravenously (or via injection) to help you relax during dental procedures. It is used to provide a deeper level of sedation than oral alternatives, allowing you to feel relaxed, drowsy, or even fall asleep during the treatment. IV sedation is safe and effective, and is often used for patients who have a high level of anxiety or fear related to dental procedures. It typically wears off within 30mins to 2 hours and can be reversed by administering an antidote, returning you to your normal level of consciousness after the procedure.

Is IV sedation for me?

IV sedation is typically recommended if you have a high level of anxiety or fear related to dental procedures, or if you have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. It is also commonly used if you require multiple procedures to be done at once. If you have a medical condition that makes it difficult for you to receive traditional forms of sedation, such as oral sedation, you may also qualify for IV sedation. Additionally, if you have a strong gag reflex or have trouble with numbing agents, you may also be a candidate for IV sedation. However, it is important to note that not all patients qualify for IV sedation and the final decision will be made by a dentist after a thorough examination and evaluation of the your medical history.

Dental injectables
What are dental injectables?

Dental injectables are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses small doses of botulinum toxin to reduce muscle activity in the face and jaw, helping to relieve pain and tension. It is mainly used to alleviate the symptoms of temporomandibular disorder (TMD), bruxism (teeth grinding), and migraines. The procedure is usually performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon and the effects typically last for 3-6 months.

Are dental injectables for me?

Dental injectables are typically recommended if you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or tension in the jaw and face caused by conditions such as temporomandibular disorder (TMD), bruxism (teeth grinding), and migraines. Dental injectables may also be recommended if you have difficulty opening or closing their mouth or if you have trouble with jaw alignment. However, it is important to note that the decision to administer dental injectables should be made by your dentist after a thorough examination and evaluation of the your medical history.

Other services 

Dental cosmetics refers to various dental procedures that enhance the appearance of a your teeth. These procedures can include teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, crowns, implants, and enamel shaping. Dental cosmetics can improve the colour, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance of teeth, creating a more attractive and confident smile.


Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. They are made of biocompatible materials such as titanium that fuse with the bone over time to provide a secure foundation for the replacement tooth. Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for missing teeth because they look and function like natural teeth and they do not rely on surrounding teeth for support.


Dental surgery refers to various procedures that are performed in the oral cavity such as tooth extraction, root canal therapy, periodontal surgery, jaw surgery, and the placement of dental implants. Dental surgery is usually performed to restore the health and function of the teeth and gums, but can also be done for cosmetic reasons.

Root canal therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure that is used to save a damaged or infected tooth. It involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth's root canals, cleaning, shaping and filling the canals and placing a filling or crown on top of the tooth to restore its function. This procedure is done to alleviate pain, prevent further infection and preserve the natural tooth, instead of extracting it.

Oral health therapist

An oral health therapist is a healthcare professional who specialises in providing preventative and therapeutic care. They work closely with dentists to provide a range of services, such as teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, and oral health education. They also perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as radiography, oral cancer screenings, scaling, and root planning, and can also provide simple restorative treatments like fillings.
